Eve of Destruction's batting average just hit an astounding 50.1%. More than half the people who visit the page download the film. Absolutely incredible.

Has any batting average ever been higher? This site might need some "records."

The Live Music Archive batting averages are significantly higher than the rest of the site, sometimes hitting 90%.

I'm sure there is something to the batting averages. But, my batting average (for Political Commercial) is lucky if it ever goes beyond 13%, yet it is #5 in downloads(?). Yet if you look at the top 19 dowloads, everyone has a batting average of 20% or higher. It doesn't make sense.

Your batting average is probably that low because people keep re-visiting your page to read updated reviews, but don't download the film again. And certainly there are plenty of people who are put off by download size or by the content of the film or the reviews.

Your probably right about the download size. The increase in downloads has been due to it being posted on bushflash.com, so I don't think the content it such an issue.
